In light of global warming, European countries have committed themselves to do more for climate protection. Both the Paris Agreement from 2015 and the European Green Deal view sustainable investment as an important starting point. The EU taxonomy is the EU wide classification system für sustainable business activities.
In line with our sustainable corporate strategy, we already voluntarily published details on environmentally sustainable revenue, capex and opex, as well as the adjusted EBITDA, for selected business activities in the 2020 financial year. In the 2021 financial year it is only necessary to determine the key performance indicators relating to taxonomy-eligible business activities. We have decided to also voluntarily disclose the taxonomy-aligned revenue, capital expenditure and operating expenses. We are also publishing supplementary information on adjusted EBITDA and on capex including the proportion for entities accounted for using the equity method.
